WAN-IFRA Women in News (WIN) aims to increase women’s leadership and voices in the news. We do so by equipping women journalists and editors with the skills, strategies, and support networks to take on greater leadership positions within their organisations.
In parallel, WIN partners with media organisations to identify industry-led solutions to create environments that embrace equality, and help navigate the digital transition, and in so doing, build toward greater financial and operational stability.
WIN is currently working with more than 80 news organisations from 15 countries, in three regions, including Botswana, Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda, Somalia, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe (WIN Africa); Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon and Palestine (WIN Arab Region); and Myanmar and Vietnam (WIN Southeast Asia).
WIN is supported by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) and the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
WIN pursues a range of outcomes and talks to distinct audience groups as part of our effort to bring about gender equality in the news media industry. Those audiences and outcomes are connected – when change happens for one it can impact the entire industry.
